    • I like how this post was written from the perspective of a person with opportunities. You also considered many factors that contribute to inequality including racism and poverty. Maybe try including some effects of inequality and why it is present in the U.S.

    • I completely agree. I really like how you said that America is the land of false advertising to some. That is absolutely true. Many come here for the many opportunities that are constantly advertised by the country, but are left disappointed when they find that it is virtually impossible to build the life you want without having an in. Why do you think that is? Do you think that it has always been false advertising or was it once true?

    • This is a well writen comment. I love all of the examples you used in this post and how they are relevant. The points that you bring up are very true and they are also problems that we shiuld try and solve. The facts that back up your points are very accurate and support them well.

    • I really enjoyed reading your post because of how relevant it is and the obvious research you put into it. It is extremely well written. America promises freedom and opportunity.

  • The ways in which some forms of racism are very socially acceptable and normalized is extremely wrong. That is what I am trying to address in this post. My point in this post was trying to show that if the name was the Black skins the teams name would have been changed years ago. Racism towards Black people is not socially acceptable as no forms…Read More

  • In this post I was trying to address how long the Cleveland Indians have kept their name. Yet, the name and mascot having a horribly racist caricature of a Native American. The point of this advertisement is to make the audience which would be sports fans on social media that this name has gone on too long. In the social media post
    I would have a…Read More

  • Hi Alvaro, I am intrigued by your article because of your opinions on the effect social media has on people. I also liked how you brought up that social media has benefits as well. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “People, teens especially, who are most vulnerable to being overwhelmed by their emotions: depression, anxiety, stress, n…Read More
